Who wants to come to Istanbul for shopping international brands? The boulevard is the classical fashion street from every big city in the world. For sure you have those brands in your country as well. And prices are exactly the same. you can also find turkish brands of clothes, especially bride's dresses, but in my oppinion not spectacular. And you... More

Amazing street in Anodolu part of Istanbul offering great avenue for shopping and food/drinks. It's not a real attraction and by buildings you can see it's quite new. It is for fun and few hours to experience (one more time) different energy of Istanbul. Maybe not the easiest place to get there, but still worth it.

What a pity to write down such a bad comment about this nice spot of the city,due to ongoing many renovation constructions in and around Bağdat street as a part of plan run by Istanbul Municipality,there are always several heavy big construction trucks through this famous street and its side connection roads,round o'clock,disturbing the traffic very much and limiting the...

This road was known as the old trade route and has now evolved into a open air shopping street, not really a attraction, you may do the same shopping in central Istanbul. If you don't speak turkish you do not get far in most of the shops and restaurants and it was the first that Turkish hospitality was far below... More

If you want open air shopping then this street can be fun, but if you only have a few days for the city, cross this off your list. Most shops are between Suadiye and Caddebostan traffic lights, as are most of the restaurants... but so are most of the crowds, and at certain times of the week, especially weekends, the... More

Bagdat street is one of the nicest streets in Istanbul. All the brands are there. Big brands, casual, haute couture, turkish brands, ... with lots of restaurants and cafes. All on the same street stretching for approximately 6 km. The street is longer but the important things are on this stretch. To get there from the European side, use the... More

This road known as Bagdat Caddesi in turkish is a great place to spent a morning if you want to shop, have some coffee or food. There are big sidewalks which are full of beautiful trees and benches where you can have a rest.There lot of shops for every pocket.The cafes and the restaurants are great with normal prices.

Mixed bag. Great people watching (clash of modern-western styles and burkas). Many stores common to Malls but many others unique to Turkey. Tourists abound Watch them make the Turkish ice cream. Incredibly dense. Good place to shop for gifts. Many nice ceramic shops and candies. Buy spices in stores NOT THE SPICE MARKET to avoid larvae, bugs and other surprises.... More
